    Great company to work for - your results may vary.

    Information Technology (Current Employee)

    ProsCompensation and work life are more than fair.

    ConsStill silo'd and still do a lot of box checking vs. what really adds value. Depending on where you work and for whom you could get a vastly different experience. I've had excellent managers and not so excellent managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDelegate, develop, trust.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company who takes care of high performers

    Senior Underwriter (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    Pros-Flexible Work Scheduling (work from home, part-time employment, etc)
    -Great people and good culture
    -Managers that do care and help foster success
    -No micromanaging from what I've seen

    Cons-Pay not as high as other carriers
    -Work/Life balance not what it should be, Chubb does truly get all that they can from their employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider reducing stock buybacks and invest in technology and expanding workforce so employees can provide better service to customers

    Would have been 5 stars but for a few major instances of micro management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAn old fashioned company (this might be a con to some), with excellent benefits and low turnover. Work-life balance is very good in most areas. Long-term employees are the majority here, creating a strong team bond and good personal relationships as well. Training opportunities are outstanding.

    ConsSomewhat antiquated rules regarding business attire (suits & ties except for Fridays/summer!) and telecommuting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview the common elements (iow the same manager) in failed or over budget projects - micromanagement is rampant and definitely contributes to the loss of skilled middle managers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    traditional insurance company, changing in fast pace

    Senior Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
    Warren, NJ

    Prosgood traditions; good inter-department relations; good compensation in average, company is trying to stay in a first row, one of a hundred best places to work just few years ago

    Consjobs not stable any more; limited opportunities to grow; stopped to support learning process; restructuring is no sense, - it turned to cutting positions...

    Great workplace, but better compensation structure needed

    Claim (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat workplace. Depending on your unit / department there is a lot of flexibility, including telecommuting one or more days a week. The company provides generous time off, decent benefits, and management support for continued professional development. There are also many opportunities to team build either in community service activities or social activities within the company.

    ConsThere are two cons that stand out. The first is compensation. The bonus structure is decent, but still fairly weak compared to other companies In the industry. Overall compensation is ok. The second problem is career advancement. Someone pretty much has to either die, retire, or quit for an internal promotion opportunity to open up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrengthen the bonus and profit sharing system and provide better compensation to retain your best talent. Also, develop people and promote more proactively. Get people ready for higher level technical positions and do less hiring from the outside.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
